Just Published! Private Well 101: Drinking Water Standards

Last Updated on January 17, 2023 by Caroline Warwick

Drinking water is something all Floridians need and use on a day-to-day basis… But where do standards for drinking water come from? And how does that relate to your private well?

While drinking water comes from a variety of sources, including public water systems, private wells, or bottled water, private well users are responsible for the management and protection of their wells and water quality.

In SL159 Private Well 101: Drinking Water Standards we go over common questions related to the establishment of drinking water standards at the state and federal level. This EDIS publication is for Florida homeowners who are interested in learning more about drinking water standards. It also serves as a reference for well owners to understand their drinking water quality.
